WASHINGTON, September 25th, 2012- Green Festival, the nation’s largest and most trusted environmental consumer event, returns to Washington DC on September 29-30, 2012.
The weekend-long show at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center will host leaders in the social justice and environmental community including authors, leaders and educators (including Ralph Nader and Dennis Kucinich).
Other highlights and activities will include an organic beer and wine garden, a ‘Good Food Stage’ featuring delicious vegetarian cuisine, and a dedicated kids’ area for learning about easy and fun ways to incorporate green at a young age.
In the center of it all is a unique marketplace of more than 300 eco-friendly businesses, featuring the latest and greatest in sustainable products and services. Hands-on workshops and sessions will teach the DMV how to invest in the local community, green their homes and how to identify products made with consideration of the earth and its people.
Green Festival is the only national sustainability event that screens exhibitors for their commitment to social justice, sustainability and ecological balance using co-producer, Green America’s green business standards.
